In partnership with the Stellenbosch Municipality and sponsors, Dr Johann Rupert and his wife Gaynor, Minister of Human Settlement Mr Tertius Simmers, Stellenbosch Executive Mayor Advocate Gesie van Deventer, and Khaya Lam’s Temba Nolutshungu visited the families at the front gates to their homes where the fully tradable title deeds were presented to the 16 beneficiaries, making them home owners. Breaking with the usual ceremonial procedure, starting from the Pniel Municipality building in Simonsberg Street, this was a walking procession entailing personal engagement with the community and beneficiaries, including the oldest recipient, 77 year old Mrs Estelle Daniels and her husband, Godfrey.
